In a recent interview with InStyle, Fox addressed the frequently critiqued age difference between herself and Colson Baker (Machine Gun Kelly).
“You want to talk about patriarchy?” Fox asks.
“The fact that he’s four years younger than me, and people want to act like I’m dating a younger man. He’s 31, and I’m 35. Granted, he’s lived like he’s 19 his whole life, but he isn’t 19. No one would blink twice if George Clooney was dating someone four years younger.” It should be noted that Clooney is 17 years older than his wife, Amal Clooney.
“Four years? Go f*** yourself,” Fox continued. “We would have been in high school together. That’s so ridiculous that women are treated that way.”
Fox shares her three children, Noah, Bodhi, and Journey, with ex-husband Brian Austin Green while MGK has an 11-year-old daughter, Casie, with ex-girlfriend Emma Cannon.
“There’s so much judgment,” Fox revealed to InStyle, adding how she is often asked: “Where are your kids?” either on red carpets or out in public with Baker. “Do you ask their dad when he’s out?” she quipped back hypothetically.
“No, because you don’t expect a dad to be with the kids all the time, but I’m supposed to not be seen and be at home with my kids. They have another parent. I have to leave, and sometimes I don’t want them photographed and they don’t come with me. This whole year I’ve been very surprised by how archaic some of the mindsets still are in some people.
In a recent appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, saying that her house is like a “UFC Fight Night all day, every day.”
The comment came after host Kelly Clarkson mentioned how it must be “crazy” having three boys, as there’s “a little bit of even energy” in her own home with daughter River Rose, 6, and son Remington Alexander, 5.
“I don’t know what it’s like to have a girl,” Fox said, before sharing how her three sons are very young and close in age. “For me, it’s like UFC Fight Night all day, everyday.”
Fox continued, joking: “We need to live in a padded cell for everyone to be safe.”
